now i have a friend who has a swift with the same jbl tube his bass is very loud and less vibs than in a 3-box car...it hits the head directly and gives a headache..
i am looking for that vibration from a sub or tube than the usual dham-dham..hope i have put my point across...

currently my setup is:
pioneer P6050 UB
jbl gt5 650c in the front door
sony 4 way coax in the rear door
budget is around 10grand..
Well if I am not wrong you have a 3-box car, a swift Dzire (or however that is spelt) so you won't get the dham-dham that your friend has in his hatchback.

Since that is clearly your preference (as indicated from your post) why don't you just put a bass tube in the boot of your dzire? That will be affordable and clearly to your choice.

For 10K you can get the bass tube and a cheap 2 channel amplifier to drive it. Leave the rest of your speakers the way they are for now.

with a hatch getting bass into the cabin is a lot easier than with a sedan.

If I understand correctly, you don't want the bass to go boom boom inside the cabin of your swift. You want it to sound more like the way it sounds in a sedan.

Try auditioning a sub in a sealed box enclosure rather than a bass tube / ported / bass reflex design.

Exclamation Need Your Sugesstions

January 2008, I had my car fitted with a new system, every thing with bill.

Pioneer system 5990 - Rs. 8000
JBL 0937 speakers - Rs. 4500
JBL A604 Aplifier - Rs. 7200
Pioneer Sub woofer (dont remember the model no) - Rs 4500

Boss Wiring kit - Rs.1200

I am absolutely delighted with the performance.

yesterday i got my car serviced and when having a look at engine saw that the Boss wire connected to the battery has a blue coloured fuse which had started melted, although the system was still working fine.

I went to the shop where i got the system fitted and the chap told me its because you play it too loud, the max volume I play it on is 20 and guess thats just half the performace of the system. i was not satisfied with the answer.

can you tell me what could be the reason.

thanks

The BOSS wiring kit is the worst you can buy. You just need to change that. Rest of your setup looks good.

PS: I think this is the wrong thread you posted in. It needs to be in car audio advice thread.

@gaurav
please go to a reputed installer
contact gunbir on this forum/

bad installs are the most common cause of most problems.
pay the installers their due dont try to get a freebie.
your problem sould be solved with a new power wire and fuse ( finolex brand sould do fine)

thanx guys,

the post was actually moved from where i originally posted so it here.

I guess I will get a new power wire and fuse (will try finolex) fixed, hope it should work fine.

I am planning to change my car and will move this system to the my new car, thats when i ll get a new set of original JBL wires from the right installer.

since delhi is flooded with fake music systems and wiring kits, its hard to distinguish between the original and fake.

Although I saw some pictures of original JBL kit hereat TEAM BHP.

gaurav, I believe the jbl wiring kits are no longer sold in india, and whatever you get here are fakes

You can get wiring kits from other manufacturers like scosche, bull etc.

Stay away from cheap brands like BOSS etc
